How to download and install Windows 10 Feature Updates

Microsoft released the Windows 10 October 2018 Update on October 2, 2018.

Windows 10 received its October update yesterday, adding several new features to the OS.

While we've yet to hear more specifics, Microsoft kicked off its keynote by emphasizing that it wants its software to help users get more organized, allow them to stay more present in their real lives, and enjoy more seamless connectivity between their Android and iOS devices and PCs.

Intel in its own advisory has recommended users with 6th Generation or newer processors to simply confirm that Intel Graphics Driver version 24.20.100.6286 or newer is installed on their computers before they install Windows 10 October 2018 Update. However, via The Verge, the company also took a brief minute to reveal a new feature for all Windows computers: Windows 10 app mirroring.

Sorry, iPhone users - Your Phone only lets you send links to view on, uh, your phone.

That's not all for Windows-related gaming fun times, either, as Microsoft are also taking the opportunity to introduce a new-look Game Bar as well (which, if you've got it turned on, lets you record clips, screenshots and broadcast your game using Microsoft's various gaming tools).


Did you know that there are multiple ways to download and install feature updates for Windows 10? It's a little thing, but probably useful to many.

The Microsoft Launcher 5.0 for Android allows users to synchronise activities between their PC and Android phone through Timeline Support.

Once an update is finished, though, Insiders usually get the "Release Preview"-aka the final version-before it rolls out to everyone else".

The home screen now includes a "Pick up where you left off" section, and searches can now be filtered to find content from your PC and the cloud. They can choose a time to finish the installation and reboot.

However, if you're still not keen on receiving the update, read our tutorial on how to put it off for as long as possible, whether you're a home user or a business. So you should be fine if this is the case, and no warning message should pop up.

Launch the app on your phone and sign into your Microsoft account. But it also means that the company has updated the set of files that the update tool can grab from their servers.
